        Definitely a must-do tour in Adelaide
        Absolutely fantastic bike tour in McLaren Vale!! Lots of nature, did spot Kangaroos and Koalas 😀, superb wineries, and a small local brewery. Our tour guide did an awesome job and was very knowledgeable about nature and the vale. Definitely recommend for everyone wanting to have some physical activity whilst seeing the sights and tasting fantastic wines. Must-do tour when visiting Adelaide!

        Beyond Expectations
        A completely wonderful day. Interesting and informative guide who ensured we had an exciting mountain bike ride that satisfied all levels. He stayed behind with the less experienced and ensured everyone was safe. Gorgeous countryside with really fabulous smaller wineries and a brewery. Highly recommended. Our guide went the extra miles to drop me at the train station!

        Top of the range E-mountainbikes and top service.
        Made a great bike tour! Rented top of the range E-mountainbikes and got a route on our demand: over Mount Lofty, via two beautiful wineries. Trails were challenging and past gorgeous landscapes. Service was top.

        Great MTB hire from Escapegoat
        Had a great time hiring an e bike from Escapegoat. Ian couldn't have been more helpful. Set up a self guided route on Garmin for us. 40k covered with wonderful trails and views from Mount Lofty. Couldn't fault the quality of the kit and the friendly service.

        What a great day! The riding level was perfect for our group with just enough challenges on the single track :) Wineries were awesome and especially Kangarilla Road Winery. Finally saw kangaroos in the wild and even a koala siting! Our guide, Ian, is the best!

        Go on... Mix wine & mountain biking... you know you want to!
        Our day with Escapegoat Adventures was a definite highlight of our trip to Adelaide! We met great people, drank awesome wine & beer, ate amazing food and rode around some of the most beautiful scenery in McLaren Vale. Geoff was a great tour guide, very friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble. We met some fantastic people from Sweden and Spain and would recommend this tour to everyone!

        Excellent way to experience wine tasting in the area!
        This is a fantastic tour. Ian was a great guide, really supportive of non MTB riders and explained the route ahead really well. The route itself started with an hour in the national park with some single track that was superb for beginners. We stopped at some excellent view points. Then we got transported to the top of one of the local climbs to descend to the McLaren flat and the vineyard. This was great fun! Then the wine tasting was excellent. A great laugh with friends with some lovely food at the first one. The second tasting was better wines but was just missing more food but that’s only because we’re a bit greedy when we’ve had a slurp! Then finished off at the brewery while Ian went back for the van. Some crisps (chips in Australia!) were available here. All in all, a great trip and we’d recommend this to anyone.

        Great day out and fantastic service
        Amazing day out, we got the morning uplift session at fox creek. I hired a bike which wasn't fancy but was more than capable on the trails at fox creek. The person driving the van was very friendly and knowledgeable re the local area and trails. Overall it was a perfect day. I couldn't recommend this service more.

        MTB rental
        Great Experience with EscapeGoat adventures. I got a last-minute bike rental very late in the day and they allow me for a late return at no extra cost. Also, the chat at the hut was nice and the coffee very good! Thank you!

        Great day in the Vale
        The day was a lot of fun and included just the right number of wine tastings considering we were traveling by bike. We visited two really nice wineries and my husband especially liked the last stop being at a micro-brewery. The day started with a ride around a gorge and then we loaded up and drove to McLaren Vale for more riding (mostly downhill) and the wine tastings. Although the first part of the ride was fun and we had some really nice views, I would have preferred to do more riding among the wineries.

        Epic Flinders Ranges trip
        The trip was well organised and it was a privilege to be able to cycle around this beautiful and relatively remote region.

      We booked our downhill MTB guided ride direct with Escapegoat - and it was the highlight of our Adelaide visit.
      The tour is very safe, even for inexperienced riders. Bikes and helmets are provided. Our guide (Ian) took the time to explain lots to us, making it a very interesting morning. There is even a "pit stop" at an animal park included.
      We went in February, but it was quite cool at the top of Mount Lofty - so Ian provided fleeces and jackets for us, at no additional cost.
      We had a great time, and we would recommend Escapegoat to everyone.
      Thanks Ian.

      Had a great time. First time mountain biking. Our instructor Lee was a great guide, he helped us through all the technical terrain and was very patient with us. He also took time to show us around the wild life park and you can see he had a love for animals.

      The whole experience was fantastic from the off road mountain bike tips by Lee, the wildlife visit and welcome coffee and muffin for morning tea. Exhilarating was my description and my wife now wants to mountain bike in every city we visit. We love you Escapegoat. First class equipment too! Cheers Peter & family

      I thoroughly enjoyed this mountain bike descent from Mount Lofty. Prompt pickup by our friendly guide Steve and good quality equipment provided. The ride down was challenging however the group stopped regularly and Steve advised us what to expect on the section ahead. The stopover at Cleland Wildlife Park was fabulous with lots of feeding of the kangaroos and wallabies, and seeing other native wildlife.

      Ian was a very thoughtful guide, always making sure the groups needs were met. This is a fun, 'soft' adventure suitable for mixed age groups. A great way to immerse yourself in the area, see Adelaide from above, meet native wildlife and enjoy the great outdoors.

      Leigh was a great guide preparing us for any hairy bits (he called them technical!) on the downhill run from Mt Lofty. Nice break at the wildlife sanctuary and then on to finish up in the suburbs and then dropped back to hotel in town.
      Some parts were a bit of a challenge but that made it all the more fun for this 72 year old.

      Apart from the excellent weather, our guide was awesome and very knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble. The views were fantastic and we were lucky to get a very clear day. It was a bit of stop - start, but necessary to ensure everyone's safety and account for the different levels of rider skill. Great day!

      Great downhill ride from the top of Mt Lofty. Some sections of the dirt track were not for the faint-hearted but our guide Steve was patient and allowed some of the group to walk those sections when they weren’t confident. Good safety tips and a big focus on rising to the level you’re comfortable with. Huge fun but not recommended for beginners. A massive highlight was the stop for morning tea at the wildlife park. Up close and personal with a huge range of Australian animals who were very cute. This tour was a highlight of our Adelaide visit.

      Had a great few hours with Escape Goat tours as we biked down Mt Lofty. Our guide, Steve, was very knowledgeable on both the area and the mountain biking know how. He was patient with us non mountain bikers and fun along the way.

      Part of the tour takes you through a wildlife park and Steve was our guide there as well.

      All in a great time!
